Description Igor Miletic 2007-03-08 08:35:51 EST
Description of problem:

gpilot and gpilot-applet not working. When applet is added to panel, it always
stays red. Also /dev/pilot link is not created.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add gpilot applet
2. Connect palm pilot
3. try to sync
Actual results:
dmesg shows that device is connected, it creates ttyUSB140 and ttyUSB141, but no
pilot link. Pointing it to ttyUSB14x freezes applet.

Expected results:
pilot and computer get synchronized.

Comment 1 Ivana Varekova 2007-03-09 04:13:47 EST
Which version of palm do you use?
Comment 2 Igor Miletic 2007-03-09 08:06:30 EST
I am using Palm TX.
Comment 3 Mads Villadsen 2007-03-10 14:02:48 EST
I am also using a Palm TX, and running pilot-xfer -l -p /dev/ttyUSB149 also hangs.

This is still happening for the pilot-link-0.12.1-5.fc7 package.
Comment 4 Mads Villadsen 2007-03-25 11:51:48 EDT
I have gotten pilot-xfer -l to work (and also syncing with jpilot works now, so
I am guessing gpilot should also work).

This is with kernel 2.6.20-1.3017.fc7.

I had to add the following line in a file called /etc/udev/rules.d/10-visor.rules

BUS=="usb", SYSFS{product}=="Palm Handheld*", KERNEL=="ttyUSB[13579]",

This line creates the dev/pilot symlink when the palm pilot gets inserted.

Output of the gnome-pilot crash
Comment 6 Igor Miletic 2007-03-25 14:37:58 EDT
This also (partially) fixed problem for me.
Only difference is that I did not have 10-visor.rules file. I add line to

Now I have problem syncing with evolution. Pilot applet just crashed. I am
attached error output from BugBuddy.
Comment 7 Igor Miletic 2007-04-14 13:30:26 EDT
As of few days ago, only change I needed to do to make Palm work with evolution
is Mads Villadsen fix (adding line BUS=="usb", SYSFS{product}=="Palm Handheld*",
KERNEL=="ttyUSB[13579]",SYMLINK+="pilot" to udev rules).

Can you please add this?
Comment 8 Ivana Varekova 2007-04-27 04:41:24 EDT
Please could you try to use pilot-link-0.12.2-1.fc7? 
It should fix your problem.
Comment 9 Igor Miletic 2007-05-01 08:24:54 EDT
Last version of the pilot-link is pilot-link-0.12.1-6.fc7, and this one works if
I add udev rule. Is there a place I can get pilot-link-0.12.2-1.fc7 from ?
Comment 10 Igor Miletic 2007-06-21 10:41:27 EDT
I think this bug can be closed now. 

Works here.
